We were staying in a hostel just outside the Damascus Gate of the old city of Jerusalem, and one street away from the Garden Tomb. Saturday was the time I could explore the area. I began with the Mount of Olives, which should now be called the Mount of grave yards and churches! I did find a couple of olive trees though. Then on to the Wailing Wall, the Old City, David’s city just south of the present Old City and the Garden Tomb. Being the Sabbath some things were closed but there was still much to see. It was a very wonderful experience for which I am most thankful.
On Sunday I returned to my wonderful family and am now catching up with life here. Tuesday - Friday of this week I will be in the SBS classroom here at The King's Lodge, teaching Genesis.
